I'm creating a PB of Oecumenius' commentary on the Apocalypse which, naturally, has some Greek.  I'm encountering a problem with one passage.  I enter

Also note that in the very next verse 7 in Jude πυρος αἰωνίου is the expression for ‘everlasting’ or ‘age-long.’

but when it compiles I get

Also note that in the very next verse 7 in Jude

Even if I introduce extra spaces in between πυρος and αἰωνίου, they still get jammed together.

 

EDIT:  Once again the text has gotten jumbled. I have previously tried without success to straighten out such occurences.  Please simply read with some understanding.

πυροςαἰωνίου is the expression for ‘everlasting’ or ‘age-long.’

Hi George - strange!

I have just taken the text in your string and compiled into a blank document.

When I compile it, it works correctly as below:

Is it possible that something around it is causing this?

Try just pointing the single string into a new document and see what you get

That makes it even more frustrating.  I tried the sentence by itself without your success.  I then deleted my PB, saved my docx file under a different name, renamed the file to its previous name, and likewise was not successful.  Perhaps I wasn't holding my mouth right when I did it.  Tongue Tied

This almost makes it appear to be a problem with my computer.  If, however, that is the case then why does it only happen here (and consistently here)?

Hand entered.

I think I've solved the problem.  I entered something called a "punctuation space" (U+2008) which seems to have solved the problem.

It's a workaround. I have to do something like that to prevent a space being truncated but it is acknowledged as a bug.

I can accept that it's a bug, but the question remains as to why it's a bug on my computer but works on Graham's.

Inconsistency is part of the issue - http://community.logos.com/forums/t/37373.aspx
